Former Indian opener Virender Sehwag has been able to carve his own niche on social networking site twitter.  Sehwag, who has earned quite a reputation with his witty posts on Twitter, didn’t disappoint this time either as he called former South African skipper Shaun Pollock “polly kaka” on the latter’s birthday.

Wishing the legendary all-rounder, the Nawab of Najafgarh recalled his Test debut in South Africa when he was bowled by Pollock in both the innings. But before that  he got off to a dream start in Test cricket. The right-hander hit a century on debut, during the first Test against South Africa at Bloemfontein in November 2001.Coming in to bat at number six when India were in a spot of bother after losing 4 wickets for 68, Sehwag hit a memorable 105 and added 220 runs with Sachin Tendulkar before being bowled by Pollock. In the second innings, he scored 31 and was once again bowled by Pollock. However, Sehwag’s ton went in vain as India lost the match by 9 wickets.

Posting a picture of himself and Pollock on Twitter, Sehwag said:”Happy Birthday Polly Kaka @7polly7.Still remember u bowled me in both innings of my debut test,in1st innings at 105″

Meanwhile, the South African great turned 43 today. One of the finest allrounders of the gamee, Pollock represented South Africa in 108 Tests and 303 ODIs. He scored 3781 runs and took 421 wckets along with 3519 runs and 393 wickets in Tests and ODIs respectively.

    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan. You will never walk alone.
